Baltimore students take up track to help stay on the right path

BALTIMORE, Maryland — According to the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, 63 percent of violent crimes committed by juveniles occur on school days right after school, from 3 P.M. to 7 P.M. Some students at Baltimore’s Excel Academy are trying to beat those odds by joining a track team to stay out of trouble, even though they aren’t properly equipped.
